Top 10 Vivienne Westwood Quotes

iv

Vivienne Westwood is the Grand Dame of punk, Duchess of ginger, Countess of rebel chic, and Empress of edge. Widely recognized as the fashion force who single handedly brought modern punk new wave into the fashion industry, Westwood has evolved into a passionate advocate and outspoken activist determined to keep wit and social awareness in the increasingly white washed industry. Her street cred is impeccable. Westwood got her start in fashion in the 1970s, when she made clothes for Malcolm McLaren of the Sex Pistols at his infamous King’s Road SEX Boutique. Inspired by the political, musical, and aesthetic innovation of London’s new Punk scene, Westwood struck out on her own, opening one popular punk fashion shop after another. Eventually Westwood went global and became the one name Designer legend we know and revere today.

Even Carrie Bradshaw, SATC’s ultimate fashion icon, made a point of selecting Westwood when marrying Mr. Big in the SATC movie. When Westwood goes avant garde bridal, all other designers must bow down.

Over the years, Westwood has taken an increasingly active role in political activism, bridging the gap between fashion and policy with a varied collection of gorgeous pieces for the woman who has no fear.  The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, climate change and the civil rights group Liberty have all benefited from her tireless toil and innovative collaborations.

But don’t deify Vivienne Westwood yet; she’s still very much around and kicking. Here’s 10 of my favorite Vivienne Westwood quotes to inspire you to go bold or go home.

Top 10 Miuccia Prada Quotes

prada2

Fashion designer, entrepreneur, curator, intellectual, feminist, and icon: Miuccia Prada is a woman of many talents. Miuccia took over her grandfather, Mario Prada’s, family owned luxury goods company in 1978 with little more than vision and drive. Over the three decades that followed, Miuccia transformed Prada into a fashion powerhouse, leading the label to record-breaking commercial and critical success and eventually making Prada the globally admired fashion institution it is today.  An outspoken liberal thinker and feminist, Miuccia Prada does not court the spotlight, but she also doesn’t shrink from it. When Miuccia speaks, she speaks with insight, gravitas, and a wonderfully endearing lack of pretension.

Here are my 10 favorite Miuccia Prada quotes.

The 10 Coolest Quotes Of Christian Dior

Christian-Dior-2

J’adore Dior!

And you will two after reading these fabulous insights from the big bad Grandfather of bold & ultra feminine silhouettes. Dior’s first Collection, Correlle, translates into “Circle of Flower Petals”; which is exactly what Dior’s delicious gowns resembled. Ladies went wild for Dior’s stunning designs, which made the wearer resemble a breathing bloom and went down in history as the ‘New Look’.

Hilariously, the notoriously understated Coco Chanel was so horrified by Dior’s elaborate and admittedly constraining creations that she came out of retirement just to him down. A dreamy and delightful man who died young, and quite suddenly, Christian Dior often waxed poetic about life’s little pleasures, joy, and beauty.

Here are Christian Dior’s 10 best quotes.
